It’s been two months since I graduated University completing the degree requirements to earn a BS in Biology and BA in Psychology.
The weeks leading up to the graduation ceremony I was not all that thrilled. Why you may ask? Well if you have recently graduated you may know what I am talking about.
I felt numb and disappointed.
My undergraduate career was the most challenging and difficult time of my life.
I had it all good up until that point, no problems. So why did life have to hit me so hard and so frequently when I needed things to go right the most? What’s there to celebrate about?
I made up my mind. I wasn’t going to go the ceremony.
However, just days before deadlines started approaching in preparation I decided to attend. The ceremony was not a celebration of earning the degrees it was a celebration and the closing of this chapter in my life. I went through hell during undergrad but I came back.
Not to mention I finally, finally, had my aha moment. (Better late than never)
Graduation now meant something different to me. It was a symbol of the personal changes I went through in undergrad life. The death of an old self and birth of a new outlook on life.
It was not easy and I battled many demons but I did survive against the odds.
Id like to encourage anyone going through strife to stick it though, as long as you are alive you can change your days and make the best out of any circumstance.
Congratulations to all the graduates of the Class of 2016!!!
We made it.
